TGIF (31): Quotes That Make You Swoon

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you've experienced in a book?

1
"I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else." - from Lola and the Boy Next Door (Review)

2
"breathtaking, adj. Those mornings when we kiss and surrender for an hour before we say a single word." - from The Lover's Dictionary (Review)

3
"It is supposed to be the truth." He stared at me and my breath caught in my throat. "If I were a better man, I would be able to show you the love and affection you deserve. As I am not, I can only offer you what I'm capable of giving. But I assure you, just because I do not show it, doesn't mean that I do not feel it." - from Goddess Interrupted (Review)

4
"We're all right, you know," he says quietly. "You and me. Okay?" My chest aches, and I nod. "Nothing else is all right." His whisper tickles my cheek. "But we are." - from Insurgent (Review)

5
"I can't believe you're here," she says, her voice soft. "I can't believe you found me."

"You found me first," he says, and when he leans to kiss her, it's slow and sweet and she knows that this will be the one she always remembers. Because while the other two kisses felt like endings, this one is unquestionably a beginning." - from The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (Review)

6
"He held on to me like I was a rock, the only thing keeping him from drifting out with the tide of dark memories. It was the first time I realized he needed me too." - from Incarnate (Review)

7
"But in the darkest hours, on the coldest nights, when I felt I'd lost everything, I still had your letters. And through them, in some small way, I still had you." - from A Rogue by Any Other Name (Review)

8
"Cassia, I know which life is my real one now, no matter what happens. It's the one with you. For some reason, knowing that even one person knows my story makes things different. Maybe it's like the poem says. Maybe this is my way of not going gentle. I love you." - from Matched (Review)

9
"I want to fill every part of you, breathe the air from your lungs and leave my handprints on your soul. I want to give you more pleasure than you can bear." - from Devil in Winter (Review)

10
"Kisses should not leave you satisfied. They should leave you wanting." - from Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake (Review)

  16. Alexa I LOVE your quotes. You're making me want to read Insurgent so bad(I know. Why haven't I?)! Also, I need to get my hands on The Lover's Dictionary. It sounds beautiful.
